St Ives Jazz Club was set up in June 1998, and every Tuesday since then, have put on  top class modern jazz in beautiful St Ives. They’ve been shortlisted twice in the Parliamentary Jazz Awards as Jazz Venue of the Year – so one of the best jazz clubs in the UK!

Guitar duo, poetry, quartet and quintet, swinging jazz, hard grooving funk/fusion originals and well known jazz standards combine in an inspiring evening.

“If there is a more complete guitarist in contemporary music than Deirdre Cartwright I’d like to know who it is.”
Dave Gelly The Observer

Guitarists Deirdre Cartwright and Kathy Dyson met in 1984 and realised that they were the only two professional women jazz guitarists in the UK; Over 25 years later they?re still the only two.

Emily Remembered invokes the spirit of the late great New York jazz guitarist Emily Remler, who died of heart failure at the age of 32 in 1990. Their two distinctive voices on the guitar create an intimate guitar sound performing swing, bossa and bop arranged and written by Remler, as well as their own compositions and jazz standards. The duo?s first album was released earlier this year,

?Their interplay (particularly striking on the album’s closer, ‘Whirligig’) is a delight throughout a varied and consistently entertaining set.?   Chris Parker

?Kathy Dyson and Deirdre Cartwright are both superb players albeit with contrasting styles that, nevertheless, complement each other perfectly. “All The Things You Are” reminded me of MJQ. The interplay between the guitars could have been created by Milt Jackson & John Lewis – that’s how good it was.?      Lance Liddle, Newcastle gig review
